Hi guys, been a lurker here for a few weeks since I started shopping for a new snowblower. I worked at HD years ago and sold Ariens all the time and liked the brand. I have a 6-8 car driveway and settled on the 28 inch deluxe. Now i cant decide between regular deluxe or the SHO. I live in Ontario , Canada and get fairly heavy snow from now until Mar-Apr. The SHO runs for about $200-300$ more than the regular deluxe depending on the dealer. Any advice? Is the SHO worth the extra few bills? Thanks

A Yamaha 1028 will serve you much better with its heavier weight for traction/adhesion and it will barely whimper when doing snow clearing as it will cast the snow much further as well.
It will not ride up on snow piles either it will dig in and chew up the END OF DRIVEWAY MONSTER and feed the moat monsters quickly.

I just bought a Deluxe 28 myself. I would have spent the extra $ if the SHO version were available locally. The SHO has a larger engine and different pulley ratios so the impeller spins about 10% faster than the standard Deluxe model. Of course I live much further south (Maryland) so I’m dealing with much less snow so the SHO was really not necessary.
Check out other folks posts-they love the SHO.

just bought the 28 SHO at a nearby dealer. He price matched and threw in free delivery. We just got 10cm of snow here, getting the machine on friday. Can't wait. This site really convinced me to go with the SHO. Even the dealer mentioned he sells more of the SHO than the regular machine. Lets go snow
